Mann (Ibanez) bass guitar, model A 911

Sorry, this listing has ended.

Ended!

Selling my ultra rare 1970's MANN jazz bass guitar. This bass was made in Japan and introduced into the Canadian market and was believed to be made by Ibanez during their lawsuit era. I have owned this bass for several years and sadly had to replace both pickups as they starting losing their strength and I opted to not have them rewound. I purchased Seymour Duncan Apollo Jazz (I think that is what they are) replacements. The original pickups had that 70s growl, Jazz basses from this period are known for. The upgraded pickups have not disappointed and also have that '70s jazz sound. As my luthier told me when he was first setting up the bass, "This bass is not supposed to sound like it does. It sounds too much like a Fender J." And this was before replacing the pickups.

I did read a story about these particular basses and when a batch was being sent to the US, customs intervened and sawed the necks off as they were not allowed to be sold in the US, as they were to be sold only in Canada. Unsure if this is true or not.

I am selling due to having too many basses. The bass is heavy-ish. Weights about 9+ pounds on my unreliable scale.

The bass functions as it should. Neck is straight and action is very low. I am an Ibanez Roadstar geek and this bass does not disappoint. I have owned a few Ibanez lawsuit basses and this is as reliable as the others I have parted with.

No case or gig back and I DO NOT HAVE A BOX to ship the bass in with neck intact to body, so unless you want to wait for me to buy one from reverb, which will add an addition $35USD to the overall price, the neck will be taken off.

No returns and NO TRADES and NO OFFERS.

No INTL shipping.
